Your booking, upon receipt of confirmation and deposit is final and no refunds are given if you change your mind. The only instances of where refunds are granted are listed below.
We take care to ensure that any pricing on our website is kept up-to-date, as much as possible. The price, whether exclusive or inclusive of VAT, will be the price shown on our website pages and on any booking pages used when submitting a booking.
Prior to the start date of any training, service or event, payment must be made in full and all funds must have been received by us. Any delegate failing to pay in full will be refused access to the training course and also removed from any online learning materials, unless we have an agreement in writing otherwise.
Payment plans are subject to availability and may be negotiated on a case-by-case basis. The details of any payment plans will be clearly stated on the invoice and must be adhered to.
Delegates that fail to make payments on their agreed due dates will be refused access to the training course and removed from online learning materials, unless otherwise agreed in writing.
We will endeavour to recover any failed payments of debt from you.
After reasonable attempts to recover debts, we will undertake the services of a commercial debt recovery agency in order to recover these debts and any fees, court fees and interest will be added onto your invoice.
If you make payment in full, and also pay any fees incurred you may be granted re-entry onto the programme.
Whilst we endeavour to ensure our website is accurate and up-to-date, there’s always the possibility of errors on our website. If you notice that we have overcharged you, we will refund the difference. For any instances where we may have undercharged you, we will inform you to notify you before accepting your booking, if possible. If we notice we have undercharged you after accepting your booking, we may contact you to rectify the pricing difference. If we accept and process your booking where a pricing error is obvious and could be easily recognised by you as an error, we can still terminate the contract, refunding any sums you have paid and have no further legal obligation to you.
Confirmation of your booking
If, for any reason, we are unable to accept and confirm your booking, we will inform you and not charge you. This may occur in situations where there has been error in advertised pricing, the dates of courses or events have changed or there is a reason that you are an unsuitable candidate for our course, service or event.
The deposit and fee for the training paid by you is non-refundable, apart from in the following cases:
The reasons are:
(a) we have informed you about a change in our terms, significant changes to booking dates or significant change in content for a course, this does not include reasonable improvements and updates to the course material, venue or content

If the course material or content is updated, or changed, or the qualification criteria changes you may not be able to join the new programme unless registering again as a full paying student.
No refunds will be given if you are unable to make the course, deferring is not an option; or if you do not show up.

You will be expected to complete missed time at your own cost.
If you fall ill, where you have to miss a significant part of the training, you may transfer onto another group on a case by case basis. This has to be agreed to in writing and is not something automatically granted.
